4 stars "A Strategic Game With Endless Hours Of Fun"

Tomb Raider has always been the kind of game no-one could dislike. You play as the Lovely Lady Lora Croft and you have a long story with a lot of strategy needed. With stunning graphics it makes for an even better play. I will say this however at times it is too easy. Some of the puzzles in Tomb Raider are to easy that literally a four year old could easily figure it out. That being the only flaw in the game it is still a worthy buy and awesome game.
4/5

3 stars "Good game, but riddled with bugs"

Good gameplay, but this is a poor port that has camera issues and bugs that can wipe out all your progress. I stopped playing it after one such instance. There are no patchs either.

Recommended only if you can handle having the game crash occasionally and losing all your progress once or twice.

4 stars "The best Tomb Raider yet!"

I've played although not necessarily completed every Tomb Raider game so far. This entry is number 8 in the series..... so is Lara beginning to show her age?

Underworld is a continuation of the story from the previous game Legend but the game provides you with a short movie re-capping events from Legend should you wish to view it. The first thing that strikes you about Underworld are the graphics, Tomb Raider has never looked better and the environments look absolutely gorgeous, its a joy to explore them. Lara is also beautifully animated and has a few new moves. It's still just as much fun as ever to scale large structures and hang precariously from ledges. The puzzles are perhaps a little too easy so you'll continually make forward progress without getting stuck for too long. I found the storyline interesting but perhaps the ending wasn't quite up to the epic finale that the rest of the game had promised. You might think differently.

Underworld is not without its problems that have persisted throughout the series. There are some clipping issues and I got caught up in the floor several times, unable to move at first but always able to extract myself eventually. The camera sometimes throws a fit and swings around wildly or offers an atrocious view of the action. The mouse will move the camera but I still found in some situations that it was impossible to always get an ideal angle. I've never been much of a fan of combat in the Tomb Raider games as it has always been implemented poorly and Underworld is no different. You get to choose from a small selection of weapons at the beginning of a new location but I just used my pistols with their unlimited ammo throughout the entire game (except the very end when you receive a special weapon). That combined with the unlimited lives you are given is all that is required.

I loved Underworld, it has a number of ‘wow’ moments when you stop playing the game and just admire the stunning scenery. It's still immensely satisfying jumping, swimming and swinging your way through ancient ruins. Underworld is an absolute must have for fans and would have gotten 5 stars if it weren't for the negatives I mentioned above that became too intrusive at times to ignore.

Description

Designed specifically to take advantage of the latest technologies Tomb Raider: Underworld represents a new advancement in exploration-based gameplay. As fearless adventurer Lara Croft explore exotic locations around the world, each designed with an incredible attention to detail resulting in breathtaking high-definition visual fidelity that creates a truly believable world and delivers a new level of challenge and choice.

For generations, stories have been told of the fearsome weapon of the Norse god Thor. Legend holds that he who wields the hammer has the power to smash mountains into valleys and the strength to destroy even the gods. For more than a thousand years it has existed only as a myth…until now.

In an ancient ruin on the floor of the Mediterranean Sea, Lara Croft uncovers proof of the Norse underworld and the mythical hammer. As she attempts to unravel the secrets behind these myths, Lara’s perilous journey leads her toward a forgotten power that, if unleashed, could lay waste to all civilization.

Features:
  • Master your surroundings: Reach new heights with the broadest range of acrobatic abilities and utilize objects within the environment to uncover new paths to explore.
  • Explore epic and unknown worlds: Discover ancient mysteries of the underworld hidden within the coast of Thailand, frozen islands of the Arctic Sea, the jungles of Mexico, and more.
  • Treacherous and unpredictable challenges: Each level is an elaborate multi-stage puzzle masked within an interactive environmental playground offering more flexibility over how the area is solved.
  • New range of combat options: Choose to pacify or kill, target multiple enemies at once with the new dual-target system, and shoot with one hand while suspended with the other.
  • New state-of-the-art gear: Utilize the latest technology in Lara’s upgraded inventory to navigate the world including:
    • Active Sonar map: A revolutionary new tool that emits an active sonar ping to create a 3D image of Lara’s surroundings, perfect for uncovering hidden items and locations.
    • Multi-purpose grapple: A claw-like device with a high-tension cable designed for climbing, rappelling, performing wall runs and manipulating objects within the environment.
    • All-terrain hybrid motorbike: A unique vehicle design built to drive on everything from mud to snow and ice.
